Skip to comments.Listening to Hugh Hewitt (vanity)

I'm listening to Hugh Hewitt right now.
I like his show, or I wouldn't listen. But can't the guy do a segment without a guest? SHEESH!!!
I quit listening to him when he spent all his time fellating Romney during the primary.
Dropped him after he called many of us “birthers.”
I call Hewitt a boring RINO like other anti-birthers Neil Boring Boortz and Ingraham. The worst anti-birther is stinking Bill O’Reilly.
We don’t get him here, but I listen to or read the transcrip of his weekly talk with Steyn. Guest are his format. He is good at it. I think it makes for good conversation. There are lots of different ways to make political talk interesting. His seems to work for him.
He’s an excellent interviewer. Don’t get me wrong. But not very many of his guests are as interesting as Steyn.
Hugh is a good commentator. He doesn’t need wall to wall guests.
Hewitt is not a RINO. I didn’t realize that Laura Ingraham is anti-birther. My respect for her just shot up a notch.
I didn’t care who Hewitt supported in the primaries as long as it was a Republican.
No, that’s simply the format of his show.
He’s not Rush, or Levin. It’s a different kind of format than we’re used to.
I don’t mind it. He has some interesting guests.
Hugh is a Republican Party shill, but he is usually up on the latest news.
I’ve been boycotting him when he either didn’t know who George Strait is, or thought it was cool to pretend not to know.
He does have Mark Steyn on occasionally.
Most talk show hosts cannot do 2-3 hours without guests. Rush is one of the rare exceptions.
Wonder if Hugh looks at Levin (#1 bestseller), Malkin (#1 bestseller), Savage (#1 bestseller) and Beck (#1 bestseller) and wonders why his RINO pap book A Mormon in the Whitehouse fizzled.
I realize that. But sometimes it becomes annoying and I switch him off for a while. :)
I used to listen but not anymore, Mark Levin is more my style.
Hugh and Levin were simultaneously on each other’s shows when Hugh praised Levin for his book.
I don’t mind an occasional guest. I especially like it when he has Steyn on.
Yeah. Hugh was an amnsesty queen ala medved too before his boy Mitt came out against it during the primary.
Mark is absolutely brilliant. But when he starts screaming, I have to shut him off. It gives me heartburn. LOL :)
LOL. Not a big fan, eh? I share some of your complaints (e.g. Romney and sucking up to the GOP establishment) and cringe when he makes political predictions. He makes Dick Morris look accurate. Also, it bugs me that he appears to solicit listeners for plaintiffs in cases for referrals (and likely referral fees) to some of his trial lawyer friends without disclosure.
RE: “Mark is absolutely brilliant. But when he starts screaming, I have to shut him off. It gives me heartburn. LOL :)”
I LOVE it when Mark yells — great fun and I am always laughing and nodding in agreement. He’s the absolute best, with Steyn and Limbaugh jockeying for second place in my book. REALLY dislike O’Reilly intensely — get him off the air.
